Trustwave wants to establish barriers at the “front door”–software-applications customers use to enter and move around a merchant or bank website–that many cyberhackers enter to attack payment systems and retrieve personal or card data.
The Chicago-based data security and compliance-management provider plans to offer customers a Web Application Firewall service and new Security Information and Event Management software, the company announced Feb. 22.
The firewall provides Web applications with continuous security, sending information about website entry and use from the firewall to the Trustwave security operations center, which in turn notifies the merchant or bank of any potential fraud risks, Trustwave stated in a press release.
Analysis of the application-specific events allows businesses and organizations to become involved only when alerts need their attention, the released noted.
In addition, Trustwave is providing a new subscription-based managed security service called the SpiderLabs Threat Intelligence Report, which provides companies and organizations access to the latest research, insight and analysis from Trustwave SpiderLabs, the research arm of Trustwave.
“Offering Web Application Firewall, Security Information and Event Management and Threat Intelligence as managed security services gives our customers advanced protection that is not available from most providers,” Patrick McGregor, Trustwave senior vice president, product management, said in the press release. “Trustwave provides these benefits for customers that might not have time or resources to deploy these higher-value solutions themselves.”
